Kelly Rowland has always been on a more mature tip than some of her fellow Destiny’s Child alums, but that doesn’t mean that she can’t have some fun every now and then.
Dumb is a track that is made for the clubs with its dark, bass-heavy beat and an emphasis on the more superficial things that someone has to offer (i.e., “Like this booty? Cough up the cash.”). Rowland’s vocals are pretty good, though she goes for the monotone flow style to fit the atmosphere of the beat, she still manages to keep it interesting. The lyrics are pretty straight forward and simple with no new ground covered.
While we don’t know if this will end up on her upcoming fifth album (which she has been dropping snippets for on Instagram), we do know that this will peak the interest of a different set than normally listens to her tracks.
